Totes Contents

Special note: Four days before our scheduled stuffing day, our County and our State went into the “purple tier” due to the Covid resurgence that made it impossible for the 100 people who normally participate in the stuffing day event become a reality. This pretty much insured that our 122 scheduled recipients for the 2020 Christmas donations would not receive their items prior to the Christmas holiday.

Early in January, a group of dedicated Totes4Teens committee members planned a staged stuffing project from several locations and homes to facilitate at least “some” of the gathered items for our recipients. This was handled over a weeks’ time and then deliveries were made over a two-day period. Other items normally part of our annual donation that require a lot of labor to collate are being saved for the 2021 donations. The list below includes most of the items that were delivered so that the kids at least had warm clothing, toiletries, and bedding for the winter months.
